Obama's Biggest Lie Yet

A memo confirming the deal between Obama and PhRMA to illegally fix Obamacare prescription drug prices is being shown at the Huffingtonpuffington Post (you can find it if you really want to).

Let's compare the promises Obama has made about this matter in the past and compare them to what he actually did behind everyone's backs.

First, on CNN in 2007 he specifically ruled out "negotiating behind closed doors" and promised to bring "all parties together and broadcasting those negotiations on C-SPAN so the American people can see what those choices are, and part of what we have to do is enlist the American people in this process." So he lied about that.

He repeated to the SF Chronicle that "the public will be part of the consultation and will see the choices that are being made." He further stated at the same time that "if a member of congress is carrying water for the drug companies and says, well, we can't negotiate for the cheapest price on drugs because we need the money for R&D research, we'll have a discussion right there in front of the American people about the fact that the drug companies do need profits but they're also spending a whole bunch of it on marketing and television ads where nobody even knows what the drug is for. That, um, builds accountability into the system, because now that congressman is put on the spot, and I would not underestimate the degree to which shame is a healthy emotion and that you can shame Congress into doing the right thing if people know what's going on."

Well now.

Having repeated all that many times in interviews, debates and countless campaign appearances right across the country, it turns out that it was not a member of Congress who has been carrying water for the drug companies but Obama himself. And he negotiated not the lowest possible price for drugs without regard for what they spend "on marketing and television ads where nobody even knows what the drug is for" but instead accepted the price demanded by the drug companies in exchange for spending $150 million on ads for Obamacare. So, by Obama's own professed understanding of human nature, it should follow that he will feel shame at having been caught selling out the American people, including his own followers, to so-called Big Pharma in service to his personal ambitions, in this case his goal of forcing on the country a massively destructive socialist medical system.

Will Obama be shamed into doing the right thing and admitting that he threw the entire country under the bus? No. My understanding of Obama's nature is that he has no sense of shame, any remnants having been long ago supplanted by his monstrous narcissism.

So we'll probably be witness to a whole new level of stonewalling and baldfaced lies from the White House and probably the MSM as well.

Obama has once again been exposed as a colossal liar, but this is his biggest one yet.

Until whatever revelation comes next.
